Canadian Adam Roberge had a short transition from road racing to the gravel grind in 2021 and it quickly paid dividends with a third-place finish at Gravel Locos. One week later, he placed fourth at Unbound Gravel. He completed the season with a win at the inaugural Big Sugar Gravel

It was no surprise then that the 24-year-old Canadian was selected as one of 30 male riders to compete in next year’s Life Time Grand Prix series, which combines three gravel races with three mountain bike races. There were also 30 female riders that made the cut from the application process, and all riders will vye for a $250,000 prize purse with equal payouts for the two elite fields.
